WEXFORD County Council has held meetings with a company seeking to relocate its business to Rosslare Harbour, a move that could see more than ten jobs created in the area.

The revelation came from Independent councillor Ger Carthy who is remaining tight-lipped on the identity of the mystery firm, but says that they would be moving from outside of Co Wexford.

"There’s been a positive meeting between the company and Wexford County Council officials,” he said. “It’s only something that’s in the initial stages at the moment, but it’s looking very positive and could potentially lead to the creation of a significant number of jobs.”

Meanwhile, Cllr Carthy is calling on Wexford County Council to make Rosslare Harbour/Kilrane its number one priority for 2022 Rural Regeneration and Development funding.

"The community of Rosslare Harbour and Kilrane, through the local Village Development Team who I’ve worked closely with, along with other community minded organisations have made great progress in improving their locality,” he said. “This work deserves to be rewarded in the form of substantial investment at government level. It seems that those at government level are only too willing to support Rosslare Harbour and I look forward to seeing significant investment to bring Rosslare and Kilrane up to a standard befitting of the gateway to Europe.”
